I am thrilled that my family happily indulges my love of visiting museums. I am continually inspired by artworks old and new. Ofcourse, for some, it is more fun to be photographed with the art then to contemplate it…

Here are a few pictures of our display this past Sunday. I introduced Manu, my collection of handbags, belts and scarfs. I’ve been scouring vintage markets and antique shops for fabrics and components for years, and am really pleased with how they have come together with my own contemporary accessories in this new line. I have also developed custom-dyed fabrics, including silk, wool and organic cotton, which are then manipulated through traditional and contemporary techniques such as knitting, stitching, nuno felting, batik, crochet, embroidery, quilting and collage.
The resulting fashion accessories are a playful juxtaposition of contemporary and vintage textiles inspired by the mix of color and ornament in indigenous folk art and the rough and weathered look of things well-worn and well-loved.
The SoWa Open Market is held Sundays, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at 460 Harrison Avenue, in one of Boston’s hippest neighborhoods, The South End, which is touted as the best outdoor shopping in Boston!

I am continually inspired by texture and color patterns. Take for example this colorful warehouse we passed as we rode the train to New York this spring. Wow! I can’t wait to see if I can get these texture and color variations in enamels.
Although much of my work is based on graphic images, I strive to visually transform them so that they are perceived as three dimensional. Take a look at this detail from a bridge in Central Park… we had perfect weather!
Have you visited the High LIne yet? This spring it was gloriously green and filled with flowers. Looks like new buildings are sprouting up along the High Line too!
